Why do food and beverage wholesalers need insurance?

Buying, storing, and selling food and beverages in bulk involves unique risks. A fire or power outage could destroy your inventory and provide a major setback to a small wholesaler. Business insurance kicks in when disaster strikes, so you can recover from lawsuits, property damage, and theft.
